A cousin to our original Clencher, this beer is hopped throughout with Simcoe and Citra, Clencher is loaded with pine and citrus aromas and the body and alcohol to compliment itís assertive flavors.

From a grumbler thanks to a beer buddy at work. Orange-yellow color with a smallish head. Aroma is grassy hops with some booze. When cold, the first thing you notice is astringency and then pine/citrus hops, booze, a small malt backbone and then a citrus pith aftertaste. Once it warms, it improves and the astringency goes away. The ABV is more apparent in this one than in regular Clencher - perhaps thatís the astringency I picked up? Not bad, but not as good as regular Clencher. Worth a try, though, if youíre a BuckleDown fan. A bit of an update on the second glass - itís definitely got the citrus pithiness working, but if it just had a bit of the grapefruit / orange fruitiness, it would be spectacular.

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co. as a 12 oz. serving dispensed to a Czech-pils glass, showing a clear & bright, medium gold color, with a frothy layer of off white head foam that hung around for awhile, then reduced to a ring & film, painting clingy, curtainy lacing on the glass. The aroma was expressive grapefruit, some tropical scent, slight dankness, with a touch of resin, and malt that offered breadiness, with almost a note of toast. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, the taste included decent citrus & resin bitterness, and some malt sweetness that lingered to finish. The heftier malt base seemed to support the body well, but mellowed the Citra influence a bit for me. Alcohol presence was noticeable and appropriate. Smooth, and very tasty, but didnít present an altogether convincing "imperial" feel, especially hop-wise.

Orange pour from draft at Beermiscuous. White head, clear. Bitter but very juicy and fruity taste. Nice tropical and hoppy brew

Poured a golden orangish color from the tap with aromas of fresh citrus, lots of it, light tropical fruit, clean malt, and a touch of bitterness. Flavors were hops on for days, lots of citrus, and tropical fruits, light bitter aftertaste, light dryness, that made you want more and more after each sip.

Incredible beer. Really orange flavored and super hoot. Smells like week and is a dark orange draft. Had at Jerry's sandwiches. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
